After nearly 100 years overlooking 10th and H streets in Arcata, the Minor Theatre is for sale — a decision owner David Phillips described as bittersweet.”

My feelings about the Minor can change in an hour,” Phillips said. “It’s always an interesting emotional experience driving by the Minor.”

Local historian Ray Hillman praised Phillips and his wife, LouAnna, for their dedication to the historic theater.”He should be given a great deal of credit for bringing it up to the first-rate venue it is now,” Hillman said.

    I went to a movie here (and one at the nearby 1930s Arcata Theatre) in the mid-1990s. The movie I saw was on one of the new screens next to the original, but I was allowed into the original auditorium, which has lots of original woodwork, a wonderful curved balcony, and Corinthian pilasters, I recall.
